Great service, ordered over the phone and it was a piece of cake. Magnets came with fresh spring and retainer clip. I got the yellow shrink tube butt connectors and should have gotten the blue ones-my mistake, it makes for a nice sealed connection.



by:

Fits well. Price jumped noticeably in the last couple months but probably due to supplier. Paid $48.54 on 01-09-19 and it increased to $72.35 on 03-21-19.

It seems to be a good quality product and customer service here is excellent! Great company to deal with.

  • How to Determine the Correct Replacement Brake Magnets for Trailer Brakes
    To determine the correct magnet you will need, you need to go by the manufacturer and size of the brakes on the trailer. Sometimes, the year of the brakes is needed as well. The brakes may have information stamped into the metal on the back side (in board side) of the backing plate. Magnet # BP01-301 fits the following: Dexter 12-1/4 x 3-3/8 Stamped Backing Plate Dexter 12-1/4 x 3-3/8 Cast Backing Plate Dexter 12-1/4 x 4 Stamped Backing Plate Dexter 12-1/4 x 4 Cast Backing Plate I have...

  • Brakes, Wires, and Grounds Look Good but Trailer Brakes are Weak on 2006 Cedar Creek Trailer
    If you are getting full power when using the manual override on your brake controller and your brakes and wires look like they are in good shape then I would try checking your brake magnet to ensure that they are in good shape. I have attached a helpful article on how to test your brake magnets for you to check out.

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Brakes that Lock Up when Brakes Are Touched
    Most likely it's a short between a stop/turn circuit and the brake output circuit that is locking up your trailer brakes when the pedal is touched as this is a very common issue. Go over the trailer wiring looking for any obvious shorts like cut or exposed wire and fix/replace as needed. Sometimes the problem is simply corrosion too so you may try cleaning the trailer connector pins as well. Here's how to fully troubleshoot brake controllers/wiring: Testing the brake controller is fairly...

  • Replacement Magnets for Dexter 12-1/4 x 4 Electric Trailer Brake Assemblies

  • Replacement Magnets for Dexter 12-1/4 Inch x 4 Inch Electric Brake Assemblies
    The magnets you have been using with the yellow wires should be the correct units for your Dexter 12-1/4 x 4 inch shoes. When replacing them I recommend sticking with the same assemblies. The Replacement Magnet Kit (with yellow wires) # BP01-301 that you referenced are designed to work with Dexter electric brake assemblies that have either the 12-1/4 inch x 3-3/8 inch or 12-1/4 inch x 4 inch dimensions, which is why you also saw them recommended for 3-3/8 inch assemblies. Going with a...

  • Difference Between Dexter Brake Assemblies BP01-301 and BP01-365
    Dexter recommends that you check the wires of the brake assemblies of your trailer to determine which magnet would be what you would need. If the wires are white you would need part # BP01-265 and if they are yellow part # BP01-301. However, aside from that they magnets are physically very similar. The BP01-301 is typically used on higher capacity setups so it is important you go with the right one for you application. Going to a higher rated magnet than what the assemblies are rated...

  • How to Wire Brake Magnets on 8000-lbs Dexter Axle
    I'll start this off by saying that trailer wiring does not have any standard colors; so it's possible that your trailer just has different color wiring on it. The question you're referencing refers to the different colors of the wires on the magnets and is just an easy way to determine the difference between the # BP01-265 (white wires) which fit brake assemblies 12-1/4" x 2-1/2" and 12-1/4" x 3-3/8"-which are typically found 7k or 8k axles. Conversely the # BP01-301 (yellow wires) is designed...

  • Replacing Brake Assemblies on 5th Wheel Trailer
    Are you speaking of brake assemblies? If so, you can certainly replace the brake assemblies on one axle and leave the existing ones in place on the other axle as long as they're working okay. When you replace a brake assembly, be sure to examine the armature surface of the brake drum (the inside surface that the magnet rides against.) If the inside of the brake drum has grooves worn in it, you'll want to replace the drum as well, otherwise the grooves will be worn into the face of the...

  • Replacement Electric Brake Magnet Retaining Clip for Dexter 8,000 lb Axle
    If you just want the magnet clips, you will use the Replacement Magnet Clips for Electric Brake Assemblies (Qty 4) # BP19005. If you need a replacement magnet, spring, and clip then I recommend the Replacement Magnet Kit for Dexter 12-1/4" Electric Brake Assembly # BP01-301.

  • Replacement Brake Magnets for Kauffman Trailer with 10k Lippert Axles
    The size brake assembly you mentioned of 12-1/4 inch by 3-1/8 inch is not a standard size for a 10k Lippert axle but it's pretty close to standard sizes in width. The diameter of 12-1/4 inch is fine but the widths typically are 3-1/2 inch or 3-3/8 inch. What it looks like you have is the AxleTek or etrailer.com assemblies part # AKEBRK-10 based on the picture you submitted. Which for that you could use the magnet part # BP01-301 for.

  • Brake Magnet Recommendation For 10k Axle Brake Hubs
    I did look at your purchase history and Dexter Trailer Brake Drum for 9,000-lb to 10,000-lb Axles - 12-1/4" - 8 on 6-1/2 - Non-ABS # 9-44-1 was purchased here. Thank you! If the magnets are bad and need replacing, the Dexter 10,000 lb trailer axle brake magnet part # BP01-301 will work but just putting new ones on will not really help in the braking performance. You would really want to do a brake adjustment using the Brake Adjustment Spoon for Drum Brakes # W80630 or review the settings...

  • Troubleshooting 3 of 4 Trailer Brakes Locking Up
    The little bit of voltage you are seeing from your brake controller is typical as that is how they test to see when a trailer is connected. I believe your problem is related to the wiring, brake magnets, or your brakes need to be adjusted. Start off by checking the connections for your brakes and looking for any places where it may be damaged or exposed. Also be sure to check that your grounds are connected to a clean, bare-metal surface. You can also adjust your brakes with a spoon # W80630...

  • How to Test Electric Trailer Brake Magnets
    I have included a link to a help article that explains how you can test trailer brake magnets. Basically you will need a multimeter such as # PT89ZR, a car battery, and the magnets. When testing I recommend testing one magnet at a time. On a 12-1/4 inch brake magnet such as # BP01-301 you should be seeing 3.0 amps at 12-13 volts. And the resistance should be 3.2 Ohms.

These will replace the factory magnets and are compatible with a Dexter braking assembly. There is also the Replacement Magnet Kit for Dexter 12-1/4" Electric Brake Assembly # BP01-301, which will also work. There is not a Dexter branded part available for these, but the Redline and etrailer branded parts are equivalent...

  • What is the Maximum Amperage Draw of Trailer Brake Magnets on a Tandem Trailer with Four Brake Drums
    Maximum amperage draw for 4 Brakes that are 10 or 12 inch diameter is 15.0 to 16.3 amps at 12 to 13 volts. The 14 gauge wire may be sufficient but for maximum braking effectiveness at full load capacity. I would opt to run 10 gauge wire. Larger wire will only help the effectiveness of the trailer brake system and 10 gauge is what we use when installing trailer brakes even on single brake axles with 7 inch brake assemblies. We offer Jacketed 2 Wire, 10 Gauge, Brake Wire, item # 10-2-1,...

  • Replacement Brake Magnet for Dexter # K71-050-00
    Based on my research the K71-050-00 number you mentioned refers to a Dexter service kit for 12-1/4" x 3-3/8" electric brake assemblies (8K to 10K capacity). If this is what you have the etrailer.com Replacement Magnet Kit # AKBRKR-M7 you referenced won't work as it's designed for lower rated 7" brakes. The correct replacement magnet for your larger Dexter brake assemblies is the part # BP01-301. I have attached a short video review that you can check out as well.

  • Replacement Brake Assemblies for Jayco Eagle Designer 35rlts 5th Wheel
    I don't have any reliable way of looking up the exact axle capacity of your Jayco Eagle Designer 35rlts, but given the 15800 GVWR and the 2350 lb pin weight specifications I found in my research, chances are you have tandem 7K axles. A 7K axle would typically use a 25580 inner/14125A outer wheel bearing. You can pull one of your hubs to confirm this. If you indeed have that bearing set, you've confirmed that you have 7K axles. You'll next want to confirm the inside diameter and depth...

  • Does Trailer Breakaway Battery Discharge Quickly When Pin is Pulled
    It sure will. Per DOT regulations, a properly functioning breakaway system should be able to hold the trailer brakes engaged for a minimum of 15 minutes. Past that point, the battery(s) would wear down pretty quickly if you're speaking of a small 5 amp battery like # TK2023. This is why some folks will wire the breakaway system into a larger battery that's also used for a powered trailer winch or jack, which isn't a great idea if you've used your winch or jack quite a bit and the battery...

  • Brake Assembly Option for 7200 lb Rated Axle
    Unfortunately, due to the unique pad size and brake assembly mounting bolt pattern used by a 7200 lb rated axle, the Dexter # 23-429 (right side) and # 23-428 (left side) are the least expensive (and the only) replacement brake assemblies we offer for your particular axle.
